Alzheimer’s is progressive; it is a disease where dementia symptoms worsen over time. However, in the case of late-stage Alzheimer’s, a person with the disease can lose the ability to converse and even respond to environment.

This disease is actually part of the top most causes of deaths claiming 500 thousand people each year.

Chiropractic treatment is designed to release pressure on the spinal column to allow proper signaling to and from the brain. The general idea on how chiropractic treatment helps Alzheimer’s is in allowing the glucose energy to reach the brain more easily through spinal manipulation thus later avoid possible development of Alzheimer’s disease.  

It has been said through research that the Alzheimer’s disease causes the cerebrospinal fluid to increase in volume and has caused chronic normal pressure hydrocephalus and toxic metabolic edema which then leads to degenerative brain size which simply means shrinking of the brain. This increase of volume of cerebrospinal fluid not only affects the brain but could also affect the entire central nervous system leading to complications regarding the spine. However, we need to understand that having spinal problems does not always mean that we have Alzheimer’s.
